Planting the Seed

This time of year on the farm, we are all about seeds. Almost everything we grow comes from a seed – thousands and thousands of them! That’s because our growing season in the Pacific Northwest passes in the blink of an eye. So we can’t just throw seeds on the ground and expect broccoli to be on our plates before the first frost. Every seed grown on the farm is placed into a hand-pressed soil block, germinated and grown in our greenhouse before being transplanted into our minerally-balanced and hand-shaped growing beds. It’s that head start that makes all the difference.

Back in December, we ordered our seeds from companies who have taken the Safe Seed Pledge and who refuse to carry genetically modified seeds (GMOs). We also choose varieties based on their taste, nutritional quality and ability to thrive in our unique Pacific Northwest region. Why grow it if it doesn’t taste amazing, right?

All this to make sure that every box of produce we provide for our customers meets our standards for tasty, nutritious food, We’d love to share our produce with you.
